I know last week things went right down the toilet with all the talk of bathroom decorating, and such.... but come on! I just had to share this idea!

Meghan sent me this picture, and I knew you'd all love to see it. She says each year she has someone scary waiting for her guests in her 2 and a half baths.... and the screams alone are worth it!

I couldn't agree with you more, Meghan!

If you love the look, all you need to do is check out some of those party and costume stores online, and you can find a red and green Freddy Krueger sweater, mask, hat, and the official Freddy glove. And usually during the off season, you can pick them up pretty cheap.

You'll also need a styrofoam (8 to 10 inch tall rectangle) block, 1 or 2 bamboo skewers, and some duct tape.

And here's how to do it in 6 easy steps....
 Slide the sweater over the base of the toilet tank.

Attach the glove to the sweater by using duct tape on the inside of the cuff. Be sure to pull the cuff down over the base of the glove, to hide the tape.

Place the styrofoam block in the neck of the sweater, attach it to the tank with duct tape, to keep it secure.

Then add 1 or 2 bamboo skewers coming out of the top of the block (pointy end goes into the styrofoam) to rest the mask on.

At the neck of the mask, secure to the block with more duct tape.

Don't forget to top it off with Freddy's signature hat.

I can hear the screams now! I love this idea, thanks for sharing. That Meghan is one crafty ghoul.
